From the Caribbean to Cornwall: Judi and her family returned from Grenada in the West Indies almost ten years ago, adding their own character and flavour to Falmouth Lodge Backpackers. Her family are mostly off exploring the world again, now, but they are a well established as a friendly and comfortable hostel welcoming more than just backpackers to enjoy all that Cornwall has to offer.

They have recently introduced a direct online booking facility, but still try to be as adaptable and accommodating as possible – so do not hesitate to call or email with any particular requirements that you might have.  Particularly if you have a large group or require sole occupancy.
